When signing on it says system battery low what do i do

Answers :

If you're using a laptop and the battery gets low, you just recharge it.
But with a desktop PC it's quite a bit different. You have to actually power off the the PC, open up the casing and then find where the battery is mounted on the mainboard of the PC. Once you have identified the battery, you most likely need a miniature screw driver to get it out. Take the battery to an electrical supply shop and get the same kind and then replace it, close the housing, reconnect and start the PC again.
The system battery is an actual battery attached to the motherboard. On modern machines it is usuay a watch battery.

\015\012 The only thing this battery does is keep the computer's internal time and all CMOS settings. CMOS is what keeps track of your basic computer settings like what kind of hard drive is on the system and what peripherials (sound, video, network, etc) are attached. MOST people only have the standard settings. If that is the case and If the battery goes completely out, and the computer is unpluged all that would have to happen is for you to, on start, choose default configuration.

\015\012If you want to change it, open the case and look for a disk shaped battery about the diameter of a quarter. Make sure you are grounded and observer the numbers on the battery. You can purchase one at most, standard, hardware stores.
